at this race, it would have -- would have been a huge gamble. scott brown distanced himself from todd akin. ultimately, too much damage has been done. the castle will not when buying the best when they by double digits, but she -- the pasco will not win by double digits, but she will win -- mccasdkill will not wednesday by double digits, but she will win. heller deserves credit for running what has been a good campaign. turnout is the bane question and how much present show -- turnout is the big question. we moved this race into our tilt republican category. it has been a while since we have seen surveys outside of the margin. >> and finally, arizona. >> democrats have made republicans work for it. a former surgeon general. an oppressive police and military background. flake suffered from a bruising primary. he had to spend a lot of this money. we are seeing the state go back to a republican lean. rounding will win comfortably. we sought -- we saw mitt romney cut an ad for jeff flake. turnout could be key. there is a large lbs population there. -- lds population there. they are breeding --
guy in particular who never recovered was senator scott brown in massachusetts. we are getting the feeling that mid september when the video came out was the last moment in which he was tied with democrat elizabeth warren. now most republicans in massachusetts and d.c. think that brown is probably not coming back next year. host: i want to go back to the "washington times" the game changes they said to watch out for in the coming six days. former oakland -- former president bill clinton was there yesterday. guest: remember back in the 1984 race, they still stuck with mondale in minnesota. a competing series about why the two campaigns are suddenly advertising in places like pennsylvania, michigan, and minnesota. the romney campaign argument is the map is expanding, polls are closing, and republicans have a real shot at winning all three of these states en route to a big electoral votes been. the democrats say this is a desperate move and they are trying to get 270 a little votes in a hail mary pass manner, using minnesota, pennsylvania, and michigan, because they're not going t
for small businesses and job creators and middle-class families. compare that to washington and shared brown, in washington he has raised taxes 36 times. 36 times during his 20 years in washington. he did not pay his taxes once, he did not pay his taxes three times. he is raising your taxes and is not paying his own. when he was asked why he did not pay his taxes, his answer was that he forgot. maybe the understand that once or twice but three times, you forgot to pay your taxes? you are on the banking committee that deals with mortgages. if you are not paying your own taxes. the reason congress has a 10% approval rating, is because they think they can live by one set of rules. it is so proud to stand up for lower taxes. i helped pass the first property tax rollback in the history of the county. >> this is simply not true, again, but i have come to expect that. he did not answer the question about grover norquist. it is not just talking about middle-class taxes. he has a fast against raising taxes on hedge fund operators, who pays more than mitt romney -- coupes -- who paid significantly low
of the members for making this possible, a great big thanks to a senator scott brown and to elizabeth warren for coming and spending time with us. it does not matter what you did tonight if you do not get out and vote november 6. thank you for watching. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> our live road to the white house coverage continues tonight. first, at a 20 5:00 p.m. eastern, republican candidate mitt romney and his -- at 8:25 p.m. eastern, a republican candidate mitt romney and his wife at a rally. then, at 10:35 p.m. eastern, obama and bill clinton attend a rally. >> now joining us on the communicators this weekend before the election is fcc commissioner mimi on cyberporn mignon cyburn. if we could start with the events of the week. cellphone towers have been knocked out. people are using pay phones because their service is not working. what is your assessment of the carriers and their ability to maintain phone service for people in the area? >> first of a, allow me to thank you for allowing me to be here
. it was a difficult decision. it is not true. jerry brown and i have a bill that will help the salaries and other splinter unions. we cannot get the ear of the republicans. i would like to hear speaker brainer bring this up -- speaker banner bring this up. it is your policy to say that the president picked certain unions over salaried folks. the rich people hold which occurred on both sides. >> you bring up sharon brown. he is running against unmandel, the republican state treasurer. that race is ranked as a tossup. how do you see that race playing out? >> brown will win. he is a great senator. he is working on behalf of the people. the things i mentioned about the auto restructuring package and the chinese tariffs, brown was leading the way in the united states senate. brown's opponents said he was against the odder restructuring package. that is an unbelievable position to take an ohio. the latest polls have brown up by seven foreign aid or nine points. brown will win with a solid lead. he is one of the hardest working senators out there. the issue is his opponents said that brown's vote for th
that out? >> that's an urban legend. we are working, nart brown and i are working very hard to help the seven or eight splinter unions that didn't end up doing as well as the u.a.w., the iue crferings wa which had contracts essential to the development of the new general motors. but this is not a union-nonunion issue. there were seven or eight different unions that didn't make out as well as other unions had. so there are many salaries folks who said this was the president picking the unions over the salary people. that's not true. there are other unions that didn't make out -- it's a bankruptcy. it was a very, very tough, difficult decision. but i will say to my friends who bring up this issue, first of all, it's not true. and second of all, sherrod brown and i have a bill that will help the delphi salaried and will help the other splinter unions and we cannot get the ear of the republicans in the house of representatives. so i would like to see speaker boehner bring this up in the leam duck session to be able to help the delphi salary folks and those other union members. so it is
: fellow how are you? host: tulsa about the races you are watching? caller: sharon brown is ohio. he has done everything. i do not believe he is honest. he said nasty things about mr. brown. he is a wonderful man. and he is great for ohio. i am also a veteran. i support all of the things that the president and the democratic party has done for ohio. i have seen many elections. i am 81 years old. i support all of the women's rights groups. and with the president is doing for our country. now my daughter is from indiana. she is also a strong supporter of the president. we all work with the campaign. i have a brother in new jersey who is going through the terrible things that happened there. also in support of the president. host: have you done anything as far as the brown campaign in the state? caller: i am a little old for knocking on the doors but i worked and one of the offices here for the democratic party. i have been sick for the last three weeks, but i have knocked on doors. i voted on the second. i have donated a small amount of money. i just bought something yesterday. i went out
are in massachusetts and connecticut. if the choice was between scott brown and elizabeth warren, there is no doubt in my mind it would pick scott brown. if the choice is between democrats can join the senate and republicans controlling the senate, that is a no-brainer in massachusetts. it is likely that scott brown will be defeated. in connecticut come on mcmahon did much better than i had expected. the problem you have as a republican in connecticut, the political gravity in the state will be working against you. that will be a tough race. and now the great state of indiana may also be going through a shake up because of comments made. >> the indiana comments? >> if someone gets pregnant during a break that might be god's will -- during a rape that might be god's will that was not a comment that was well- received. >> that was made by the republican candidate who beat dick lugar. >> it was ahead by five or six. in the polls. >> what he was saying is that god does not make mistakes. yes, it is a horrible thing, but god let that happen. that is a thing that christians believe. it is god's will, and
. real clear politics ranks that race as a toss up. had you see that race playing out? guest: brown is a great senator, he is working on behalf of the people. the things i mentioned about president obama, the auto restructuring package from the terrace on the chinese products coming and. shared ground was leading the way. it was unbelievable -- shared ground opponent's says he was against the auto restructuring package. and that is an unbelievable position to take. the latest poll i saw had him up about eight or nine points. i think people when. is a great ground game, too. is one of the hardest working senators. his opponent said he votethe auo bailout was unamerican. host: jim on our ohio line. caller: i drive a jeep. i am a supporter of senator brown and our president. and i met you at a rally last year. and i was very sorry that of course. john, who i think you know pretty well, is no longer serving us. but i hope you will be back. i am -- in line with that, the redistricting issue, i wish she would speak a little bit to the pathology of how these districts are being gerrymander
york times" -- excuse me -- the "washington post," "boston globe" shows a tie between scott brown, the incumbent republican senator and elizabeth warren according to the new "boston globe" poll yesterday. it stands in contrast to efficiently others showing warren with a lead. other stories shows brown has decided to cancel the last debate between the two of them saying it is not appropriate at this present time with this storm. and the "washington post" election lawyers ready to challenge illegal activity. thousands of attorneys representing two major presidential candidates civil rights groups are in place policied to challenge electoral results that may be called in question by machine failures, voter suppression or other allegation of illegal activity. that is a story also in "u.s.a. today" taking a look at what happened in 2000 in florida and saying that possibly another state could be like florida in battleaybe ohio or other ground states where you could have a recount and not know who the winner of the election is. also front page of the "wall street journal" medicare compli
the state. just ask scott brown. we will now go to oregon, on our line for republicans, ilene. from one of those non-swing states. good morning. caller: good morning. i thank you for c-span and all that you do for the election is wonderful. i am a republican but i did vote for gary johnson. i watched the debate on your channel. and i had not voted, and we vote by mail here -- had i not devoted and we vote by mail, i probably would have voted for obama. i think he did a stellar job. with the correct name. i think you for your programming. host: are there issues you wish the candidates would address more but you think they are not because oregon is not considered a battleground state? caller: jobs of course. we are one of the poorest states. i volunteer at a food bank. i cannot believe how fast we have grown up. because of lack of employment. and it is sad, it is very, very sad. >> thank you for the call. we want to show you a clip of the governor romney yesterday in virginia. one of those swing states. yesterday he campaigned with majority leader eric cantor, a congressman from virginia.
they are still polls. i think brown is probably ahead. i think the democrat is leading by 5 points. he will run a little bit ahead of president obama in the state. he appeals to some voters that obama does not appeal to simply because he's been there along time. i think brown ends up being safe. bill nelson has survived an onslaught of more than $20 million in outside ad spending. he's running against representative connie mack. while mack has had the potential to make it real contest, he has not. nelson is running it pretty close, six. . that's our it will end up on election day,. virginia was tied for very long time. there were 6000 poles in a row that showed it at a tie. -- there were 6000 polls in a row that showed it at a tie. we did the washington post poll that showed romney leading by a much larger number of earlier this week i do and think tim kaine is ahead by 3 points. on election day, this will be really close contest. i still give tim kaine the edge, a tort allen is not dead by any means. host: if you are interested in hearing from those candidates, we have covered man
generally, they have got brown the voter contact on the ground. no real number moving-ad. this could be potential there. host: what can democrats read into these numbers? caller: further down into the paoll, an unusually high percentage of pennsylvania voters approved obama's job performance -- 53% of them. democrats can feel probably a little reassured -- it is difficult to imagine a president with that high again approval rating -- of an approval rating in this environment getting thrown out, getting rejected. caller: he covers politics for the "philadelphia inquirer." the poll out this morning -- results available online. thank you for being with us. let's give back your phone calls. mike joins us from pennsylvania, democrat line. good morning. caller: good morning. my question is, with the controversy around the voter i.d. issue, the republican legislature suppressing turnout, do you think this will in any way suppress turnout and, if so, will it be enough to effect the margins in any way? thanks. host: thanks for the call. guest: last march, the legislature passed a law that req
folks you may know. chairman reince priebus, and the former cleveland browns great gary baxter is here. we appreciate his support in the campaign. i have been heartened by the support that our campaign is receiving across the nation. the attention that is being focused on this race is because people recognize how much is at stake. it is critical time for the country. we face or rumors -- we face enormous challenges, an economy that is not putting people to work. the people coming out of college cannot find work -- half of them cannot find work. around the world we face at china which is going to be a major economic power. already is and will be a stronger power down the road. has been taking a lot of jobs from people here in ohio. the also face radical violent jihadists. i am proud of the fact that our team has focused on what we will do to bring real change, big change to a country that badly needs it. we have a precedent today -- president today who has a different view. his view is we are on the right track, no need for major change. my view is this track is the wrong force for amer
, but also the about brown states. it is to get the same coalitions, the youth, the women, both on a phillippe -- unaffiliated and republican, minority provisions need to turn out in historic week disproportionate numbers. denver has a very young population, which is also a democrat stronghold. i have seen that had three or four times in the last couple of nights spirit -- i've seen advertisements three or four times in the last couple of nights. host: are you seeing what lawyers are doing to prepare for that? guest: modern campaigning since 2000 with the florida recount, it seems that one of its first things you do is hire gorda attorneys, between good election law and getting ready for the challenge. on the republican side i'm confident. the democrats have a well oiled machine, not only nationally. but on the republican side they are very well-organized. their two legal strike teams in a lot of the counties, not all 64, but the key ones. they will have teams of lawyers on the ground actually watching the palace -- the ballots be processed. it is all feeding into the central to
states. and whether it's scott brown a republican in massachusetts or hide camp in north dakota or in indiana or linda in hawaii, it's a bunch of people -- and i think of it as it's like you could have an olympic gold medal winning swimmer but how bad can the undertoe get before they get sucked under? and you take massachusetts where brown's got to basically win 100% of the republican vote and 100% of the independent vote and one out of five democrats. or win every romney voter plus maybe 200,000 obama supporters have to split their tickets. wow. that's really hard. >> but that goes to the point, too. if all those people did win the senate would look very different because they are opposite parties in a very -- right? in states that don't traditionally let someone from their party. so there would have to be those down the middle need to compromise people and this is where massachusetts is a great case study because scott brown loses he's going to lose with very high positives. people like him. not because people think he's a terrible person. just the idea of i don't like the ide
cleveland browns great, gary baxter. he is here. and i appreciate his support in the campaign. i have been heartened by the support we're recieving. the attention on this race is because people understand how much is at stake. it is a critical time for the country. we face challenges, massive debt, and an economy that is not putting our people to work. young people coming out of college can't find work. china, which is going to be a major economic power. it has been taking a lot of jobs from people in ohio, with radical violent jihadists. this is a big election about big things, and i am proud we are focusing on what we'll do to bring real chance to a country that needs it. we have a president today that -- has a different view about us being on the right track. my view is that this is a turning point for america. and those people who want change from day one will vote for paul ryan and myself. as i go across the country, i recognize that people don't want 23 million americans out of work, looking for a good job. administrations comfortable with trillion dollar deficits and kids not gettin
believe in him as a leader and as a good person and a family man. senator brown and i are debating a variety of issues. one of the main issue was whether or not the free enterprise system works. i believe when someone decides they're going to go to a community bank for a loan to start a hardware store or go to family for investment or maybe still some property to start a restaurant and they take that business from two employees to 20, 200, we should celebrate that in america. we should advance that. we should reward that success. of the worldama's are trying to demonize that success. we cannot be pro-jobs and anti- job creators. we cannot go on the front of the new york times and vilify those men and women who are signing for loans to create those jobs. that is the fundamental question he and i are having. for me, i believe in the free enterprise system. he and i are also having a public policy debate about the importance of fiscal conservatism. or right now, the lack thereof. senator portman mentioned what we have done. signing for loans to create those jobs. that is the fundament
, we will not have to take military action. >> nothing that governor brown me just said is true starting with the apologizing. this has been the biggest whopper that has been told over the course of the campaign. every fact checkers said that this was not true. we have put in the toughest, most crippling sanctions ever. well we were coordinating an international coalition to make sure that things were effective, you were still invested in a chinese state oil company that was doing business with the iranian sector. i will let the american people decide who will be more effective when it comes to imposing crippling sanctions. with respect to our attitude about the iranian revolution, i was very clear about the murderous activities that had taken place that was contrary to international law and everything that symbolizes what are people stand for. the strength we have shown a iran has been shown with the world. when i came into office, the world was divided. iran was at its weakest point economically, strategically, militarily has banned in many years. we will continue to keep pres
